Sooo…I’m an old longboarder and I have this Surftech Munoz I love but Smacked it on the rocks inside Deadmans and broke out two finboxes. So of course when you guys put out this repair video I latched onto it, the perfect solution I thought. This is what I found. Epoxy resin will dissolve the adhesive on the shipping tape allowing the resin to seep under the tape and into the fin box, it is probably true for polyurethane as well. If you have narrow fin box edges and there isn’t much reveal after you cut the tape away, you have to apply a very thin coat of resin just barely up to the tape. Allow as little resin as possible to contact the shipping tape until after the second or third coat. Good luck! I see why you guys won’t touch this one with a ten foot pole.

Good stuff. I’m loving my 6’2 Codfather. I’m convinced that board is perfect. How could a custom fish be any better, I feel like that board is already so perfect?

The answer lies in several questions I need to ask you... "What's your skill level, height, weight, goal, type of wave...?" I think you get the idea.
